Deviled eggs are a staple at any holiday party, they always seem to be one of the first things to go and I love how simple they are to make. These bacon cheddar & ranch deviled eggs have a nice flavor kick to them and are sure to be a hit at any holiday get-together. The recipe makes 16 deviled eggs at 1-2PP each depending on your 0PP foods and just 51 calories, if eggs are a 0PP food for you then 2 would be 1PP.
Tips and suggestions…
I used all of my own spices to get that ranch taste, as an alternative you could use a few teaspoons of ranch seasoning.
Cheddar works well with this recipe however any shredded cheese will taste good, if you want to switch it up and use mozzarella or a 3 cheese blend they will taste as equally delicious.
You could cook your own bacon and crumble it up, I used the packaged real bacon bits as a time saver.
These eggs can be made up the night before, however, I strongly suggest you keep the egg yolk mixture separate from the egg whites till you are ready to serve them.
Leftovers will be good in the fridge for 2-3 days in a sealed container.

- Strain the water from the eggs and run cold water on them to prevent them from cooking longer.

- Using a piping bag or a ziplock bag, pipe the yolk mixture into the egg cups. Top with remaining green onion and bacon bits.
